Think she covered for Larry King once about a year ago
And I can't remember when was the last time Kyra was anchoring during prime time.
Indeed. If so, hopefully the CNNI anchors can be used to be report for the CNN/US coverage (iReports, social media etc). Might as well make use of them
Possibly many hour simulcast on CNNI.
And hopefully Natalie is on overnights because I suspect she may be needed if Irene is as bad as it could be

I expect CNN to simulcast with CNN USA much of the day as Irene is tracked. Good news: Storm weakening (for now) at Category 1.

edit: I've switched back to CNNI as they are simulcasting again at 1400 GMT. I wonder for how long this time?

Lets just say I feel very sorry for Reggie, Jon, Ralitsa, the CNNI weekend writers, producers etc, the teams in Libya. And pull 'the worlds news leader' tagline and all those Libya coverage promos NOW. "F U CNNI" seems very appropiate. Why can't CNNI put the CNN/US simulcasts in the hours were there would not normally be a CNNI newscast?

They're ignoring the rest of the day's news by axing all their regular bulletins, but they've also botched their hurricane simulcasts by only simulcasting CNNUS during those times they'd normally do an international news bulletin. There's definitely no winners today. Those wanting to find out on the world news and those wanting hurricane coverage are all disappointed. What a tragedy CNNI weekends are.

I remember some years ago during a hurricane they simulcasted the top of the hour, broke away about 15 minutes later for all the other stories of the day and handed it back to CNNUS at the bottom. That was a reasonable concept.
The main problem is that CNNI's probably making money with the preproduced shows. Not airing them means blowing a hole in the budget.
